Body found inside submerged truck in southwest Miami-Dade was badly decomposed, detectives say
Miami-Dade police are investigating after a body was found Monday night inside a submerged pickup truck in southwest Miami-Dade.
According to Miami-Dade police, the white vehicle was spotted by a worker around 9 p.m. in a canal in the area of Southwest 197th Avenue and 192nd Street.
Divers entered the water a short time later and pulled one adult from the water, Miami-Dade Fire Rescue officials confirmed.
The victim was pronounced dead at the scene.
Police told Local 10 News reporter Roy Ramos that the body was badly decomposed, which leads them to believe this all happened several days ago.
They are now working to find out how this happened and who the victim is.
Anyone with further information is asked to call Miami-Dade Crime Stoppers at 305-471-8477.
